Celery Casserole

Submitted by: Barbi Claridge

1 pkg wide egg noodles
1 stalk celery
2 cans Campbells Cream of Celery Soup
T. milk if needed
dashes of celery salt
dashes of onion powder
dashes of garlic powder

– Cook the noodles as directed on package, strain in collander and
rinse well in hot water.

– Wash and cut the celery into 1/4″ slices.
Boil the celery in water, until tender when stabbed with a fork.
The wider they are, the longer they will take to get tender.
You will want to cook them until they are very close to the firmness
you want, because the baking part does not soften them much more.

– Mix everything together. If it seems dry add milk, a tablespoon at a time and mix.

– Do a taste test, and add more dashes of seasonings if needed.

– Bake, covered for 30 minutes.

This can also be made in the microwave, about 5 minutes or until center is hot.

Optional Toppings:
Cover with grated white cheese and bake for 5 minutes more or until melted.

Chile Rellenos Casserole

Recipe By: Barbara Pollack

27 ounces canned green chiles — whole
22 ounces cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1/4 cup almond powder*
1/2 teaspoon salt

* Almond powder may also be known as ground blanched almonds.

Prepare flat baking dish(es) (e.g. quiche pans) by greasing
or spraying with nonstick spray.

Thoroughly blend eggs, almond flour, and a pinch of salt.
Pour a thin layer on bottom of baking dish(es) reserving
more than half for topping.

Clean any seeds and membranes out of the peppers.

If peppers are whole and in good shape, you may stuff each
one with a thick piece or rolled-up slice of cheese and
place in a single layer in the baking dish.

If the peppers are not whole or if you are pressed for time,
spread out half the peppers in a single layer, inside up,
in the baking dish and layer cheese evenly over them using
about 3/4 of the cheese. Top with the remaining peppers in
a single layer, inside down.

Cover with the remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle the remaining
cheese over the top.

Bake at 375°F until cheese is melted and slightly browned–
about 30 minutes.
